You have the power to do extraordinary things.
You can help a struggling Tucson family pay for housing and food. Deliver medicine to a fragile Holocaust survivor in Israel. Serve a hot meal to a child in a village in Ukraine. Give a local teenager her first Israel experience.
This year, a friend of the Federation has generously offered to match new or increased gifts. We know you will want to take advantage of this historic opportunity to see your donation do even more good. When you connect with the Federation, you put the Jewish values of compassion, generosity and responsibility into action. Every day, together, we improve the lives of people in our community, in Israel and in over 70 countries.
We are family. When one of us is in trouble, we all feel the pain. When one of us celebrates, we all share the joy. We share history, heritage, and values. This is what makes OUR Jewish community something special.
The world around us, including our Jewish community is always changing and as a vital resource to the community, the Federation is changing with it. We are one of only two Jewish Federations in the country that has a LGBT Jewish Inclusion Project and the only Federation that has a Jewish-Latino Teen Coalition. We are reaching out to new areas of the Jewish community through exciting programs and initiatives at our new Northwest office.
Together, we are inspiring a new generation of Jews by sending 8th graders from the Tucson Hebrew Academy to Israel and a group of young adults on a Birthright Israel trip. We are caring for our neighbors and helping the most vulnerable among us through our LEAF, Mitzvah Magic and Homer Davis projects.
Our community has inspired a donor to establish a matching gift opportunity of up to $75,000*! It is our hope this will act as a catalyst in motivating you to take action. Giving more of your dollars means doubling the impact. The strength of our community is our unique ability to come together. The strength of our community relies upon you. Together we do extraordinary things.
*All new gifts and increased pledges received by December 6, 2013 and paid by May 31, 2014 are eligible for the match.
